The project An innovation policy framework and policy options for the development of biorefineries that finished in June 2018 is a part of the f3 and Swedish Energy Agency collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems. In January, an article was published from the project in the scientific journal Technological Forecasting and Social Change.

It discusses how various network characteristics could affect the development of sustainable technologies, including how different categories of network management strategies could be deployed to influence actor collaborations. The paper’s main contribution is an analytical framework that addresses the changing roles of network management at the interface between various phases of the technological development process, illustrated with the empirical case of advanced biorefinery technology development in Sweden.

The article, titled Technological development for sustainability: The role of network management in the innovation policy mix is linked from the project page along with two other deliverables.
